Presenter Bio:
Robert Weinerman began his financial aid career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1993, and has been working in the higher education finance field ever since. He spent more than ten years in senior financial aid roles at MIT and Babson College, and 13 years at College Coach, the nation’s largest provider of college counseling services to corporate America. While at College Coach, Robert led a team of financial aid officers that worked with parents as they prepared to save for or pay for their child’s education, or repay education loans. In 2015, Robert joined Iron Bridge Resources, the higher education consulting and training firm, as director of training. Iron Bridge Resources recently acquired Jim Briggs’s company, The Tax Detective, and Jim has selected Robert to be his successor.

Session Description:
Many financial aid administrators rely on the prior year tax return as documentation for professional judgments. If you’ve started considering professional judgments for the 2023-2024 tax year, you probably noticed some changes on the 2022 tax forms. In this webinar, we will look at what’s new on these forms and in the tax code, focusing on the new Form 1040, line 1, changes to the child tax credit and Form 1040, line 22, and the third year of coronavirus related distributions which will leave residual income from tax year 2020 in the 2022 AGI. The focus of the webinar will be the proper use of 2022 tax returns as documentation for 2023-2024 professional judgments, but any information we have about how 2022 tax forms will be used in the post-FAFSA simplification, post- FUTURE Act world will also be discussed.
